Rew Yang, a 2020 United States presidential candidate in the Democratic Party and blockchain advocate, says he will implement blockchain-based mobile voting as president. According to Yang's campaign website, Yang believes that Americans should have the option of voting on a mobile device, using blockchain tech for verification purposes. As an upshot, Yang reportedly hopes that mobile voting will drive increased participation in elections.
Last month, a new political action committee supporting presidential candidate Andrew Yang announced it will accept donations in Bitcoin via Lightning Network. In April, Yang also called for clear guidelines for investors, companies and individuals on cryptocurrencies adding that the blockchain has vast potential. As previously reported by Cointelegraph, the ruling party of the Russian Federation, United Russia, launched a blockchain-based platform for voting in primary elections back in March.
It allows citizens to vote online with vote counting supported by blockchain technology to prevent tampering.
